Re: iPhone5 Lightning adaptor w/Pioneer drops GPS

I am having the same problem when I connect my iPhone 6 to my touch screen car head unit using hdmi and lightning cable, hence, at the same time, charging the phone.

I am using the latest iOS (8.3) and Waze version (3.9.4.5).

My GPS suddenly drops when I connect my lightning cable to my phone. I have to do this in order to mirror my Waze screen to my head unit and allow my head unit to control Waze, which works well, except that the GPS is dropped, and therefore my turn-by-turn navigation is severely affected.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Same here, but with a regular charger. It does not happen all the time, but when it does, I have to restart the iPhone

Hi,
I'm having the same problem with my app radio 3. Appradioworld.com says that when the phone is hooked up to the head unit and using Waze, the stereo uses its internal gps and not the phone. Waze needs to make it optional on whether or not to use the head unit's gps or the iphone's gps.

Same here. Randomly losing GPS when charging thru USB in the car (even though it's a new 2.1A charger from Belkin)

Is there an app similar to GPS Essentials for iOS? It'd be useful as a test app to see what's going on when you connect to the radio.

Alan,

Appradio has a cable that has 2 purposes. HDMI output to the stereos screen, and that standard '30 pin USB stuff'. Like charging, controlling the music app, etc. it all just happens to be one cable. (One very thick monster of a cable)

Mine stall out on all, but it's not as noticeable in the other apps since they don't have a banner that says the GPS signal was dropped like Waze provides.

When you write "USB in the car" is that a simple charger only or is it a USB connection to the stereo as well?

Without taking the dash out of the car and getting access to the USB on the other end of the pioneer adaptor cable, this is the only option in the car.
